Irish Senior Cup 2024
Round 2: Brigade v Leinster. Match abandoned.
Beechgrove, 9 June.
Brigade
Leinster
The holders had a wasted journey to take on Brigade with the weather never relenting, meaning the game will now be played at Rathmines on Sunday June 16th.
Round 2: CSNI v Instonians. Match abandoned.
Stormont, 9 June.
CSNI
Instonians
No play was possible at Stormont with a steady drizzle followed by heavier rain meant a frustrating day for all. At least the teams had a short trip and the match will now go ahead on Sunday at Shaw's Bridge.
Round 2: Waringstown v Pembroke. Match abandoned.
The Lawn, 9 June.
Waringstown 6/0 (1.2 overs)
Pembroke
Just eight balls were possible at The Lawn as Waringstown met Pembroke in a repeat of their 2019 final. The teams will now meet again at Sydney Parade on Sunday with Waringstown hoping that their Emerging Ireland trio of Tom Mayes, James McCollum and Morgan Topping will be allowed to play as they are scheduled to face West Indies U23 Academy in a four-day game starting next week.
Round 2: CIYMS v Muckamore. Match abandoned.
Belmont, 9 June.
CIYMS 77/2 (14.2 overs; John Matchett 46; Sathish Suresh 2-15)
Muckamore
It will be a trip to Moylena next Sunday for both sides after the game at Belmont was abandoned in the 15th over. Home skipper John Matchett had made 46 in CIYMS's 77 for 2 when play was stopped, never to resume - both wickets going to Satish Suresh.
Round 2: Balbriggan v North Down. Match abandoned.
Jack Harper Ground, 9 June.
Balbriggan 219/2 (30 overs; Chris De Freitas 107*, Cameron Rowe 82*)
North Down 23/2 (3 overs) (Target 127 off 11 overs)
It was a frustrating afternoon for Balbriggan who were well on top throughout their clash with North Down at Jack Harper Park only to be denied by the elements. The home side made 219 for 2 in a rain interrupted 30 overs with Chris De Freitas returning to form with an unbeaten hundred, sharing a century stand with opener Cameron Rowe (82*). More rain meant North Down were facing a near impossible 127 in 11 overs, and that got worse as they lost two early wickets. However, more showers meant an abandonment with the replay now at Comber next Sunday.
Round 2: Phoenix beat Railway Union by 180 runs (DLS)
Phoenix Park, 9 June.
Phoenix 385/9 (50 overs; Levon Shields 143, Tyrone Kane 76, Nic Pretorius 32, Shane Getkate 31, Johit Munjal 22; Piyush Sharma 3-88, Liam McCarthy 2-71, Sean O'Brien 2-78)
Railway Union 195/9 (40.1 overs; Kenny Carroll 41, Zaman Safi 41, Aakhil Prakash 30, Hamza Maan 27, Liam McCarthy 21; Amish Sidhu 3-34, Jack Lalor 2-34, Devender Ranolia 2-38)
Centurion Levon Shields (CricketEurope)
A third wicket partnership of 156 between Levon Shields and Tyrone Kane propelled Phoenix to an imposing 385 for 9 at home to Railway Union. Levon Shields - dismissed for 99 on Saturday - didn't miss out this time on the three figures landmark as he clubbed 15 fours and 4 sixes in 143 from 138 balls, sharing that stand with former Irish international Tyrone Kane whose 51-ball 76 included 8 fours and 4 sixes. Shane Getkate cleared the ropes four times in a 10-ball 31 as the home side plundered runs at will. Kenny Carroll and Zaman Safi both made 41 in the reply, but the Park Avenue side finished well short on 195 for 9, losing by 180 (DLS).
Round 2: Malahide beat Clontarf by 24 runs (DLS)
The Village, 9 June.
Clontarf 175/9 (50 overs; Reuben Wilson 43, Andrew Delany 23; Mike Frost 3-32, James Newland 2-33, Kelvin Donnelly 2-33)
Malahide 68/2 (11.3 overs; Younas Ahmadzai 33*; David Delany 2-37)
Action from Malahide (Deryck Vincent)
Malahide beat Clontarf and the weather to make it to the last eight in a 24-run (DLS) win at The Village. Reuben Wilson's 43 was the best of the Castle Avenue side's 175 for 9, with three wickets for Mike Frost and two apiece for James Newland and Kelvin Donnelly. Opener Younas Ahmadzai's unbeaten 33 ensured the home side were on the right side of the DLS calculations when rain forced the players off in the 12th over with Malahide on 68 for 2 - both wickets going to David Delany.
Round 2: Merrion beat The Hills by 231 runs
Anglesea Road, 9 June.
Merrion 419/6 (50 overs; John Anderson 178, Swapnil Modgill 115, Adam Rosslee 43, Stephen Doheny 32; Brandon Kruger 3-56)
The Hills 188 (32.5 overs; Muzamil Sherzad 72, Yaseen Sherzad 36, Brandon Kruger 35, Nicloaj Laegsgaard 21; Max Sorensen 3-45, M Deveraj 2-26)
Swapnil Modgill and John Anderson shared a second wicket stand of 284 (CricketEurope)
Two-times winners Merrion made an Irish Cup record score as they thumped The Hills by 231-runs at Anglesea Road. John Anderson made his 8th Irish Cup century - second only to Decker Curry's ten - hitting 22 fours and 8 sixes in a brilliant 178 off 134 deliveries in their 419 for 6. He shared a second wicket stand of 284, the second highest in the 42-year history of the competition, with opener Swapnil Modgill, whose 115 from119 balls included 12 fours and one maximum. Adam Rosslee cleared the ropes four times in a 22-ball 43 as Merrion piled on the misery. The Hills never threatened the huge target, but Mazamil Sherzad's 72 at least ensured some respectability as they scored 188.
Round 1: Cork County lost to Balbriggan 1-0 in a remote bowl-out
Mardyke, 26 May.
Cork County
Balbriggan
Balbriggan hero Cameron Rowe was successful in the bowl-out (Balbriggan CC)
No play was possible on the second and final attempt of the scheduled first-round replay at The Mardyke. A remote bowl-out was needed to decide who would progress with the Munster side missing all five attempts. Cameron Rowe was the Balbriggan hero as he hit on the second attempt to book their place in the last 16. There they will have a home tie against North Down at Jack Harper Park on Sunday June 9th.
Round 1: Cork County v Balbriggan - postponed.
Mardyke, 18 May.
Cork County
Balbriggan
The game at the Mardyke was called off after an early morning inspection which meant that Balbriggan were saved a wasted journey. The game will be replayed at Jack Harper Park in a few weeks.
Round 1: Brigade beat Woodvale by 119 runs
Beechgrove, 18 May.
Brigade 314/8 (50 overs; Scott Macbeth 123, Adam McDaid 61, Iftikhar Hussain 39, Aditya Adey 4-69, Ruhan Pretorius 2-45)
Woodvale 195 (40.1 overs; Ruhan Pretorius 103, Andy Britton 4-25)
Centurion Scott Macbeth (CricketEurope)
It was a tale of two centuries at Beechgrove with two of the country's in-form players going head-to head. Brigade batted first and plundered 314 for 8 with Macbeth hitting 12 sixes - one of which cleared the clubhouse - on his way to 123 off 87 balls. He added 136 for the 3rd wicket in 20 overs with Adam McDaid, who hit 7 fours in his 61. Woodvale's chase was all about Pretorius who also reached three figures - hitting 10 fours and 5 sixes in his 103 from 90 balls. He received little help and with home skipper Andy Britton taking four wickets, Woodvale were 195 all out - losing by 119 runs. Brigade therefore the only NW side in the last 16 draw.
Round 1: Bready lost to Phoenix by 258 runs
Magheramason, 18 May.
Phoenix 374/5 (50 overs; Jack Lalor 201*, Shane Getkate 77, Tyrone Kane 44; Pearce Ryan 2-63)
Bready 116 (26 overs; Gavin Roulston 45, Kyle Magee 28; Theo Dempsey 2-7, Tyrone Kane 2-23, Ash Bain 2-48)
Jack Lalor scored 201 (CricketEurope)
Jack Lalor's 201 not out propelled Phoenix to an emphatic 258-run win over Bready at Magheramason. The Australian hit 20 fours and 7 sixes in his brilliant knock, adding 90 for the 4th wicket with Tyrone Kane (44) and 169 for the 5th with Shane Getkate - who hit 6 sixes in his 77 from 45 balls. A final total of 374 for 5 was always going to be daunting, and the hosts never really got going despite Gavin Roulston's 45 and 28 from Kyle Magee. To add to Bready's woes Davy Scanlon suffered a stress fracture of his arm and was unable to bat - their innings closing on 116. A day to remember then for Lalor who has previously been in the Melbourne Renegades Big Bash squad, but never played.
Round 1: Killyclooney lost to Clontarf by 10 wickets
Killyclooney, 18 May.
Killyclooney 171 (31.1 overs: Mark Gordon 61, Kenzie Hall 45; David Vincent 4-36, David Delany 3-52)
Clontarf 176/0 (19.4 overs: Eoghan Delany 76*, David Vincent 73*)
David Vincent and Eoghan Delany shared an unbroken stand of 176 (CricketEurope)
An unbroken first wicket stand of 176 in under 20 overs between skipper Eoghan Delany and David Vincent hurried Clontarf to a 10-wicket win at Killyclooney. Delany's 76 came from just 50 balls and included 11 fours and 3 sixes, while Vincent's 73 from 69 deliveries saw hit stroke 10 fours and clear the ropes twice. The home side's 171 owed much to Mark Gordon with the left-hander hitting 6 sixes and 5 fours in a powerful 61 from 49 balls, while Kenzie Hall clubbed four sixes in his 45. David Vincent's four wickets would have meant he was a shoo-in for the Man of the Match if there was one, while David Delany took 3 for 52.
Clontarf Head Coach Andrew Poynter
Round 1: Instonians beat Eglinton by 142 runs
Shaw's Bridge, 18 May.
Instonians 307/5 (50 overs: Robert McKinley 107, Nikolai Smith 89, Ollie Metcalfe 64; Mark Averill 2-71)
Eglinton 165 (33.2 overs: Andy Millar 55, Ross McLaughlin 39; Cian Robertson 4-21, Ben Rose 4-52)
A century opening partnership between Ollie Metcalfe and Rob McKinley set Instonians on their way to 300+ total at Shaw's Bridge. After the departure of Metcalfe Instonians skipper Nikolai Smith and McKinley added a further 165 for the second, with McKinley finally falling for 107. The total was just short of 300 when Smith was out for 89 (9x4,3x6) no doubt satisfied that his side were well on their way to a win. Andy Millar had other ideas and the big left-handed opener raced to 55 off 40 balls (4x4, 5x6) before Ben Rose struck a massive blow for the home side in the space of two balls. The penultimate ball of the powerplay saw him bowl Miller and next ball a catch by Adam Ly saw professional Lahiru Dilshan depart without scoring, 72/0 had suddenly become 72/2 with both of the big threats gone. Rose made it a family affair as he claimed the wickets of the other two Miller brothers, both to Metcalfe catches. Cian Robertson was back to his parsimonious best, claiming 4-21 in his allotted ten overs as he and Andy White polished off what remained of the Eglinton lineup with only Ross McLaughlin providing any resistance.
Round 1: Carrickfergus lost to The Hills by 4 wickets
Middle Road, 18 May.
Carrickfergus 217 (49.1 overs; Michael Gilmour 72, Jake Egan 55, Ruan Haasbroek 36; Febin Manoj 3-22, Matthew Weldon 3-60)
The Hills 218-6 (46.5 overs; Andrew Kavanagh 61, Tomas Rooney Murphy 61, Nicolaj Laegsgaard 29; Prince Sharma 4-49)
Febin Manoj took 3 wickets on his senior debut (CricketEurope)
The Hills travelled to Carrickfergus and safely progressed to the last 16 with a hard fought four-wicket win. Contrasting half centuries from Michael Gilmour and Jake Egan helped the hosts post 217. Gilmour top-scored with 72 (6 fours, 4 sixes), while Egan's 55 included 4 fours and a six. Teenagers Febin Manoj (3-22) and Matthew Weldon (3-60) took three wickets apiece. Andrew Kavanagh and Tomas Rooney-Murphy each made 61 in a second wicket stand of 93, and at 189 for 2, the result looked a foregone conclusion. However, four wickets for Prince Sharma (4-49) saw the innings stutter before they clinched victory in the 47th over.
Round 1: CSNI beat Newbuildings by 76 runs
Stormont, 18 May.
CSNI 252-4 (50 overs: Stuart Thompson 87*, Jordan Neill 73, Paddy Beverland 36*; Ross Hunter 2-46)
Newbuildings 176 (40.3 overs; Gareth McKeegan 65, Ryan Hunter 38, Ross Dougherty 34; Adam Leckey 3-28, Jordan Neill 2-30, Matthew Foster 2-33)
Jordan Neill (CricketEurope)
CSNI skipper Stuart Thompson's unbeaten 87 from 71 balls (11 fours, 1 six) helped his side to a 76-run win over Newbuildings. Thompson shared an unbroken 5th wicket stand of 128 in 19 overs with Paddy Beverland (36*). Earlier, Jordan Neill also made a half century, hitting 7 fours and 2 sixes in his 73 as the Stormont side posted 252 for 4. Gareth McKeegan and Ryan Hunter - who hit 7 fours in his 38 - had the NW side in a good position at 90 for 1. McKeegan top scored with 65 (7 fours, 3 sixes), but his demise at 139 for 3 sparked a collapse as they lost 7 wickets for just 37 runs to be 176 all out - three wickets for Adam Leckey and two apiece for Jordan Neill and Matthew Foster.
Round 1: Ardmore lost to North Down by 14 runs
The Bleachgreen, 18 May.
North Down 185 (48 overs; Ani Chore 79, Mohammed Aahil 24; Harry Zimmermann 3-40, Rachit Gaur 3-42, Conor Brolly 2-12, Dharm Singh 2-42)
Ardmore 171 (39.1 overs; Ciaran Roundtree 87, Rachit Gaur 27; Liam Hayman 3-27, Kerwin Mungroo 3-28, Mohammed Aahil 2-32, Peter Davison 2-21
North Down side that beat Ardmore by 14 runs (CricketEurope)
North Down got the better of Ardmore in a close contest at The Bleachgreen with the Comber side winning by 14 runs. Ani Chore hit 6 fours in his 79 as the visitors posted 185 - three wickets for Harry Zimmermann and skipper Rachit Gaur, while Conor Brolly bowled an excellent ten-over spell to claim 2 for 12. Kerwin Mungroo (3-28) made early inroads in the chase,and at 87 for 5, Ardmore looked beaten. However, Ciaran Roundtree counterattacked as he added 64 for the 6th wicket with Mark Chambers. Liam Hayman (3-27) however got three wickets and despite Roundtree's 87 from 78 balls (8 fours, 4 sixes), Ardmore were 171 all out in the 40th over.
Round 1: Malahide beat Lisburn by 2 wickets
The Village, 18 May.
Lisburn 229 (49.4 overs; Faiz Fazal 81, Neil Whitworth 72; James Newland 3-45, Jeremy Martins 3-34, K Donnelly 2-39, Mike Frost 2-39)
Malahide 231/8 (49.2 overs; Jeremy Martins 73, Mohit Sane 43, Andrew Sheridan 33*, M Ford 26; Faiz Fazal 3-30, Neil Whitworth 2-47)
Malahide edged out Lisburn in a last over thriller in probably the game of the day. The Wallace Park side will rue throwing away a great position as a third wicket stand of 145 between Faiz Fazal and Neil Whitworth took them to 190 for 2 in the 40th over. However, from there they only added 39 to be 229 all out - three wickets apiece for James Newland and Jeremy Martins. The home side were in difficulty in the chase at 62 for 4, but Martins top-scored with an even time 73 (7 fours, 1 six), adding 112 for the 5th wicket with Mohit Sane (43). The game was still in the balance at 197 for 8, but Andrew Sheridan's unbeaten 33 got Malahide over the line with two balls to spare.
Round 1: Railway Union beat Cliftonville Academy by 74 runs
Park Avenue, 18 May.
Railway Union 224 (49.1 overs; Hedayat Ullah Khogiana 103, Liam McCarthy 22; Andrew Forbes 2-16, Matty McCord 2-43, Abhishek Raut 2-49)
Cliftonville Academy 150 (41.2 overs; Tommy Orr 33, Varun Chopra 27, Rory Bessell 25*; Srihan Karpe 3-32, Sean O'Brien 3-33, Liam McCarthy 2-13)
Hedayat scored a hundred (CricketEurope)
A superb century from young Afghanistan batsman Hedayat Ullah Khogiani was the catalyst for Railway Union's 74-run win over Cliftonville Academy at Park Avenue. He held the innings together with 103 (8 fours, 1 six) after they were struggling at 24 for 3. He added 55 for the 5th wicket with skipper Liam McCarthy (22) as they finished on 224. Tommy Orr top-scored with 33 in the reply, but three wickets for Sean O'Brien and Srihan Karpe, plus two for McCarthy closed out the win and ensured progress to the last 16.
Round 1: Pembroke beat Coleraine by 284 runs
Sydney Parade, 18 May.
Pembroke 394-7 (50 overs: Nick Stapleton 144, Tim Tector 124, Gavin Hoey 35, Danny Hogan 31, Jack Tector 28; Lee Ritchie 2-56)
Coleraine 110 (25 overs: Scott Campbell 36; Paul Lawson 4-34, Gavin Hoey 3-17)
Centurions Tim Tector and Nick Stapleton (CricketEurope)
2019 winners Pembroke brushed aside Coleraine, encountering little trouble as they won by a whopping 284 runs at Sydney Parade. Nick Stapleton and Tim Tector both made hundreds as they added 184 in 30 overs as the hosts plundered 394 for 7. Stapleton top-scored with 144 from 121 balls, hitting 9 fours and 8 sixes, while Tector's 124 from 100 deliveries included 13 fours and 3 sixes. Gavin Hoey hit four sixes in a quickfire 35, while Danny Hogan cleared the ropes twice in a hard-hit 31. The visitors never laid a glove in the reply as Scott Campbell's 36 was the best of their 110 - four wickets for Paul Lawson and three for Gavin Hoey.
Round 1: Merrion beat Donemana by 10 wickets
Anglesea Road, 18 May.
Merrion 190 (40.4 overs, Raymond Curry 78, Gary McClintock 25, Levi Dougherty 23, Rumesh Buddhika 21, Melvin Devaraj 5-35)
Donemana 191-0 (27.2 overs, Stephen Doheny 106*, Swapnil Modgill 72*)
Centurion Stephen Doheny (CricketEurope)
Two times Merrion had little trouble accounting for Donemana as they chased 190 to win by 10 wickets in the 28th over. Irish international Stephen Doheny hit an unbeaten 106 from just 81 balls that included 14 fours and 2 sixes. He found a willing ally in fellow opener Swapnil Modgill who made an unbeaten 72 in their stand of 191. Earlier Raymond Curry stroked 13 boundaries in his stylish 78, but from looking well placed at 80 for 0 and 147 for 4, the Tyrone side faltered to be dismissed for 190 - five wickets for Melvin Devaraj.
